Personally, I’m a huge true crime fanatic! I love crime novels and documentaries. So here’s a list of the best true crime documentaries, from a true crime fanatic!
Evil Genius: The True Story Of Americas Most Diabolical Bank Heist
This crazy true story has so many twists and turns I don’t even want to write a description of it. This docu-series is super underrated and, in my opinion, is one of the best I’ve ever seen.
Watch it now on Netflix.
Buzzfeed Unsolved True Crime
This hilarious but seriously interesting series stars Ryan and Shane, two friends who discuss the worlds greatest unsolved mysteries and the possible theories surrounding them.
This is my personal favourite series I’ve ever seen! They discuss everything from well-known cases such as the Zodiac killer and the case of JonBenet Ramsey to lesser-known cases such as the case of room 1046 and the case of Ken Rex McElroy.
Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes
This eerie series tells the story of one of Americas most notorious serial killers, Ted Bundy, and contains the tapes from his confession.
There is also a movie based on Ted Bundy which stars Zac Efron called, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

This short docuseries is perfect for someone interested in the science behind police investigations. Each episode is about a different type of forensic evidence, video forensics, blood splatter, cadaver dogs, and touch DNA.
This is a Netflix documentary.
If you’ve run out of true crime to watch, here’s a few great crime tv shows...
